Looking through family photos a couple of weeks ago, I found this picture of me taken in the mid-80s, all dressed up and ready to take part in the local carnival.
I was so proud of this scarecrow costume; I'd made it myself and it even won a prize!
A week or two later, Dad was getting ready for a really important work meeting. I realised, with a sinking feeling, that until carnival day he'd had two dark suits. Apparently, I'd run scissors, mud and straw all over the wrong one.
This is my entry to LV='s blogger competition to identify the funniest schoolboy error. You can find out more on its blog. I'd love to hear your schoolboy errors too.
